Wednesday Woodworking – Starting the Canvas Rack

Started a new project this week.  Heather has converted the guest room into her art studio and is in need of a rack to store her canvases and frames.  I’ve got a ton of scrap wood in the shop that I need to get ride of so …

I took an old bookcase and starting milling the shelves into rails:

Old plywood shelves cut into two inch strips.

In fact I cut a bunch of strips:

33 of the strips at last count. Only need 15 more.

and finally started putting them together:

First side panel.

The next step is to make more of these and add a plywood shelf.  More about that next time.

If you need me – I’ll be in the shop,

    Looks awesome. I can’t wait to see the finished product. As any good builder of anything knows, though, it is the process you love that make the end so good.



  5. Looks very impressive 🙂


  6. Have you ever considered selling these at a local store, consignment maybe. They are amazing works of woodworking.
